I was thinking this morning about how when Riley first started the pump I was posting all the time about his bad numbers. Well, his numbers haven't been bad at all lately. He's had a few higher numbers, but all in all his numbers have been great. I know that this can be temporary, so I'm enjoying it while I can. I thought since I shared the bad numbers with you, maybe I should share the good ones too.
We haven't had to adjust his basals in a while, other than the occasional decrease for a low or exercise. He's eating well. I can tell that he feels so much better than when his sugars where in the 300s.
198- 1:00 PM
229- 4 AM
163-supper (had pizza--check out how his sugar did)
98- 2 hours after pizza- he got a little snack and a basal decrease for one hour
130- 3 hours after pizza
148- bedtime snack
So far today, his sugars have been:
111-5 AM (pump suspended)
106- 6 AM
So, after all those horrible posts about the pump in the beginning, the words "I love the pump" are now heard quite often in this house, followed by a huge grin, and a whispered prayer of thanks.
